Interesting thought. I really like Cowboy Movie as a song but I really can't see (hear?) either Weir or Garcia carrying it off vocally.

Phil and Friends did it a few times in 2005 - good instrumentally but Chris Robinson isn't high on my list of favourite singers. And as I recall Phil didn't sing...

Most welcome. Glad I could help. Sorry if I was a little down on Chris Robinson - I still take Shake Your Money Maker out for a spin every now and then!

Thanks for the link, Rob. I guess it only works with Crosby. Great song though.

Heading to Gloucesterhire for the Wychwood Festival in a few minutes. Not the greatest line-up (but I always enjoy seeing The Levellers), and there's a lot to see and do over the weekend. Weather's looking good for it.

Have a good time, knowing that my weekend will be about dirt and sod than about music and celebration. I guess I'll get an ipod boom box and dance on my new grass later...

You probably won't have time right now, but if you want a GD cowboy song you should definitely try this 66 rarity

Words and music by Garcia apparently.
'Watching mashed potatoes dribble in the heat of reality's earth'

You can see why he left these things to Hunter.

Anyway it's a nice, light and refreshing little show for when you have an hour to spare. Have a great weekend!
